The Dudley Castle became the centre as the town grew and by the 18th century had rapidly grown into an industrialized area. The remains of the Castle are one of Dudley's most famous sights.
Although now ruined, the castle still offers superb views across the local area. In the grounds of the castle is Dudley Zoo, the largest in the West Midlands and notable for its 1930s Art Deco architecture. A
nother place very popular with families is the Black Country Living Museum, which recreates the history of Dudley on a large scale, complete with a reconstructed Victorian town centre.
